Tony Bennett’s first album of celebrity duets (2006's Duets: An American Classic) featured an impressive cast of superstars answering the call from the dean of pop vocalists, but the arrangements were overly safe – virtually all of them ballads with soft strings or brassy finger-snappers. Duets II follows the first by five years and features, surprisingly, a cast just as star-laden, but also arrangements that are much more dynamic, and suitable for each song and its participants. (Marion Evans, a veteran whose career goes back nearly as far as Bennett's, handles the charts for a few of the best here.) Bennett, as ever in splendid voice and impeccable groove, laughs and trades lines with stars half his age (like John Mayer), or in the case of Lady Gaga, six decades younger, and clearly makes them so comfortable in this setting that it would be easy to believe that jazz vocals were their home. Standard fare yields standard results for the likes of Michael Bublé and Josh Groban, but all of these songs have something to contribute.

Kashif burst onto the music scene with his Billboard R&B single "I Just Gotta Have You." His urgent delivery oozes with vibrancy accompanied by a poppin' rhythm arrangement and some solid change-ups. It peaked at number five after 20 weeks. "Stone Love" commissions a funky bassline and seductive background vocals which contrast Kashif's zealous intonations. The single topped off at 22. With its moderately aggressive rhythm, "Help Yourself to My Love" finds the Brooklyn native patiently cradling the lyric. This album has one good composition after another. Kashif's adamant deliveries are poisely contrasted by cooing background. Though there are no authentic string and horn ensemble, the fomer B.T. Express member gets optimal use of his sythnesizers and keybaords. This is an excellent debut.

Gilbert "Gil" Scott-Heron was an American soul and jazz poet, musician, and author, known primarily for his work as a spoken word performer in the 1970s and '80s. His collaborative efforts with musician Brian Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues, and soul, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. His own term for himself was "bluesologist", which he defined as "a scientist who is concerned with the origin of the blues." His music, most notably on Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul.

Joe Tex (born Joseph Arrington, Jr. in Rogers, Texas) was one of Southern Soul’s most uncompromising performers blending gospel, country and rhythm & blues into his repertoire. After winning several revues at the famed Apollo Theatre Tex signed to King Records, in 1955 and recorded a succession of singles for the label from ballads to rockers. A session at Muscle Shoals in 1964, with the singer now signed to the Dial label, produced Tex’s first R&B #1 with the straight ahead R&B ballad ‘Hold What You’ve Got.’ Over the next 10 years Tex racked up numerous R&B and Pop hits including arguably his most well-known song ‘Skinny Legs And All’ in 1967 (R&B #2) and ‘I Gotcha,’ his fourth R&B #1 in 1972.

After being a premier vocalist in the '60s, Warwick seemed to have hit a stylistic wall by the early '70s. By the time she signed with Warner Bros. in 1970, Warwick attempted many styles and producers. Then Came You, released in 1975, has her teaming with both Jerry Ragovoy and, for one track, Thom Bell. Jerry Ragovoy was a successful producer who had Garnet Mimms and Howard Tate among his credits. For this effort, Ragovoy assembled a strong New York session band, including John Tropea, Leon Pendarvis, and Bob Babbitt. The first track, "Take It From Me," has Warwick getting a more R&B styled production rather than MOR. That was perfect since her voice had matured, attaining an effortless warmth and ease. Here she wasn't so much an interpreter of "great material," her voice and charm were the primary draw. Ragovoy's track "Move Me No Mountain" has a Barry White-styled backing, and Warwick got a chance to be more sensual.

Even though Just Family was produced by Stanley Clarke and employs a lot of musicians who had jazz backgrounds – including Chick Corea, George Duke, Airto Moreira, and Bobby Lyle – this is an R&B album first and foremost. Dee Dee Bridgewater would return to jazz in a major way in the 1980s, but in the late 1970s, she was emphasizing adult-oriented R&B and going after fans of artists like Phyllis Hyman and Minnie Riperton.

50 years ago Emanuel Lasky’s timely ‘A Letter From Vietnam’ appeared on a brand new record label: Armen Boladian’s Westbound Records was born. In the ensuing years Westbound set about proving that post-Motown Detroit could still be a home to successful music-making, scoring hits and developing careers with a series of acts including Funkadelic, Denise LaSalle, the Detroit Emeralds and the Ohio Players, as well as registering pop hits with Byron McGregor, and recording incredible jazz on its Eastbound subsidiary.“Everything Is Gonna Be Alright” celebrates the label’s achievements in the world of soul, funk and gospel. Named after Bill Moss’ uplifting gospel anthem, the journey takes you from Westbound’s very first single, via the vocal group traditions of the Detroit Emeralds, the Magictones and Unique Blend, and the funk of Funkadelic and the Ohio Players, to the Dennis Coffey and Mike Theodore-dominated disco era with C.J. & Co and others.

Tamar Braxton's return to music in 2013 could not have gone much better. Love and War debuted at number two, featured a number one R&B hit and two additional singles that either scraped or peaked near the Top Ten. Three Grammy nominations resulted. Follow-up Calling All Lovers is wrapped up like it offers even more theatrics. Braxton isn't smiling in any of the photos contained in the booklet, which is made to look like a newspaper titled Tamartian Times. (Braxtonian Beacon was likely never considered; "Tamartian" is a nod to her followers).
